For your sake the rear view mirror blocked out the majority of the Vette spanking you.

Hope you have a lot of money saved up to have a shot at killing a Z06.

needs: a shifter and a driver mod lol

did you miss 2nd and 3rd gear? why is there 2 big clunks between each shift? double clutching like a tarctor-trailer, or? haha

congrats on going to the track and not being an idiot on the street. thumbs up for that

Yeah thats the wrong z06 to go against. I think he is running a 200 shot. That thing never gets beat out there.

First time drag racing! The clunking noises was the rear upper control arm bushings that were completely gone! Im building a 347 stroker with all forged internals to take on the Z06 next summer. Shifting has been getting alot better since then!

I had a C6 Z06 that I sold back in April. I now have 2 Fox in the garage instead. Driving that Z06 was like driving a really fast Lexus.

Well that wasn't that surprising. If you built a halfway decent 347 and got the fox's weight down to about ~3100lbs (which seems like a lot of people manage to do that) You'd be at about the same power & weight of the z06 so that'd make a very interesting race.

Keep in mind the z06 has a trans geared specifically for going from 0-60 and one of the corvette mags did a test and a stock 2004 z06 ran 11.9
